Competitions:

We compete at inter-University competitions across the country. Competitions are a great chance to compete against other University dance teams, and it's a fun day out with the RUBLS crew! We hold our own Salsa competition named Salse Fiesta which has been running for the past three years and has been very successful so far!

                        

We hope you are interested in joining RUBLS! Dancing is a great way to meet new people and get away from the daily stresses of studing and working! We hold many events throughout the year including themed nights out, movie quiz nights, RUBLS Christmas Dinner and our very own RUBLS Spring Ball!

We are very lucky to be funded by the Annual Fund and in the summer of 2014 we recieved a grant to purchase team dresses and ties for competitions. We look forward to showing these off at future competitions!
